It looks like 2016 may be the year climate change shifted from a warming to a cooling pattern, if the Jakobshavn Glacier in Greenland is any indication.
Over the past two decades, the Jakobshavn Glacier in Greenland had been melting at what climate alarmists might term an alarming rate. However, a new study published in Nature Geoscience has concluded that since 2016, the Jakobshavn Glacier is now growing again.
Using airborne altimetry and satellite imagery data, the study concludes that since 2016, the glacier has been advancing. The data used was from NASA’s Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) mission. The study was conducted by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) with contributions from Remote Sensing Solutions in Barnstable, Massachusetts, and the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands.
The study traces the glacier’s growth spurt to a naturally occuring cycle of cooler water in the North Atlantic more than 600 miles south of the glacier. Researchers posit that the cold water was set in motion due to an effect known as the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO), which causes the Northern Atlantic to switch slowly between warm and cold every five to 20 years.
The water in Disko Bay, where the glacier meets the Atlantic, is now 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit cooler than it was just a few years ago, causing the Jakobshavn Glacier to grow. Water temperatures in the vicinity of the glacier are now colder than they’ve been since the mid-1980s.
And, boy, were the scientists surprised about it.
Never mind that sunspot activity has been declining for several years now.
Some scientists predict a catastrophic cooling period that won’t bottom out until 2032 and could lead to all kinds of problems with food production and everyday life.
Others just note that between 2016 and 2018, the global temperature cooled over one degree Fahrenheit, and that if this trend continues into 2019, it will wipe out global warming completely, bringing us back to pre-1980s climate numbers.
The planet is vast, and our Earth is but a grain of sand in the universe. How can we think we can predict what will happen even a generation from now, let alone a century?
2-Step Size System for Better Rockiness
Lowering your blood pressure THIS way makes rockiness great again…
…because it expands the penile chambers for better blood flow…
Blood flow and blood pressure go together.
If you’re getting great blood flow, your blood pressure will naturally lower on its own…
And then rockiness will improve until you’re getting fantastic stiffies again anytime you want.
But let’s be real. Global warming pseudoscientists don’t really care if their numbers are accurate or not. They’re towing the ideological line to get millions in grant money.
And politicians on the Left see dollar signs in tax money they can confiscate to “fight” the problem.
Meanwhile, the U.S. saw record cold last April, and spring seems to keep getting later every year in areas where the climate varies seasonally.
